Cathy Long, custodian, is September’s Safety Hero for identifying a slip hazard.
- STOP: Long noticed water on the floor in Spedding hall, which could make the floor slippery.
- THINK: Concerned about a slip hazard, Long contacted ESH&A to help investigate the source of the moisture on the floor.
- CHECK: The source of the moisture was found to be from ice melting off liquid nitrogen dewars used in the DNP-NMR lab. Water leaked into the hallway when a container designed to collect the melted ice overflowed.
